How to become a good writer? Do I need to read a lot first before becoming one?
Ya i am rating 74 but still i am not a good blog writer because some grammer mistakes can occur anywhere on your blog so please be careful and learn & read a lot first before becoming a good writer
I believe that the more you read...the more quality stuff you read... you will become a better writer. I have taken very few writing classes, most of what I learned about writing has been from reading good writers.
Tenet it is a learning process. As a writer you wear many different hats, but you have to find your inner voice. You are a constant student, but once you find passion in a certain area, you will be unstoppable.
I think being an avid reader does make a better writer. As you read, you are not only taking in the information or entertainment of the book, but you are learning writing style; what you like, what makes you want to move on in the story.
You can also learn how not to write, what about a certain book bores you, or makes you want to put it down. It is all a learning process.
You cannot be hurt by reading anything and everything you can get your hands on. Everything in life that has a word on it was written by someone - so all reading is like studying a textbook on the subject of writing. It opens ups new worlds as well as increasing your ability to write.
Own the "Becoming a Writer" book, it will show you how to become a great wirtier as quick as you completed reading this book: http://www.amazon.com/dp/0874771641/?tag=lotoshth-20
That is how I learned. By reading old texts, or just good books required by high schools even though I didn't go to high school.
Read, read, read and read more. I am convinced that the only way to become a good writer is to read everything you can get your hands on. Stephen King thinks so too....
I highly suggest reading some good books, if not for improving your writing then even to further educate yourself. But i don't think reading a lot is one of the requirements eve if it does help.
To become a good writer you DO need to read a lot, you also need to write a little something every day. It doesn't matter what you write - just write, review the books you are reading.
Keeping a diary is a good way to improve your writing. Read it, write it, embellish....
Keep a notepad with you at all times so that you can jot down all those ideas so you don't forget them - your jottings may come in useful tomorrow or in years to come. Reading the genre that you intend to write in also helps.
Thank you so much for all your comments. I really appreciate it. They are very helpful.
